I've been a huge Ty Detmer fan ever since he arrived at BYU
twenty-something years ago. I was at the fireside in Salem that Mr. Harmon
mentioned. Dustin, Shad and Ty spoke - their message is powerful and one I hope
every athlete could hear.What impressed me most was that Ty not only
stayed long after the fireside was over to sign autographs for all who wanted
one but he stayed even longer to throw the ball to kids in the gym. Ty walks
the talk on every level - if only all who had some level of fame would adopt
this same attitude...
Someone once said that a role model is not a person,it's a behavior. Ty
Detmer is a great role model, and what a world it would be if we had more of
I have a picture of Ty with my son at the Texas game. He was very gracious and
it's obvious he's very happy in his world. He is the best, and we
wish him the best!
Ty is a class act and a greqt ambassador or his sport, school, and Church.
I still remember the Miami game in Provo. Detmer was incredible. What a great
night in Utah sports.
